Brent Sievers’ Exhibit in City Hall
During July BEAD will exhibit works by local painter Brent Sievers in the City Hall atrium, 401 N. Morton St. Bloomington native Brent Sievers’ artwork is inspired in part by his career in science, specifically chemistry. His work is influenced by both the natural and urban landscapes, from which he works to capture the idea that these landscapes are ever changing. A portion of the exhibit will consist of works titled “Walking Through the Levee, which were inspired by the area of Bloomington that use to be known as The Levee.Sievers presents his artistic perceptions of the world around him in an abstract fashion that he hopes will make viewers stop and think. He creates intriguing pieces with layers of color, lines, shapes and textures. Areas of paint are covered with additional layers, reworked, and many times scraped away, imparting a tension that exists on and beneath the surface. Sievers’ intent is to create a compositional rhythm that builds in interest with repeated viewings of his work.
